I can chat, talk and teach about spirituality all day long. I love a good metaphysical conversation. And, what I have noticed is that I kept my Divinity hidden away. Recently, I have begun to unleash it, let it roam free, get some air and have a good time.
The impact it has had in my life is a little startling. I have been stopped in supermarkets, have been told that my voice calms and soothes, and people have crossed the room to talk to me.
So it just proved to me that keeping that part of my own Divinity hidden away has actually kept me from being seen and heard.
It was a journey of forced love. I realized that I wasn’t going to receive what I wanted unless I began to truly love and (most importantly) respect myself. I say it was a journey of forced love, because I ignored the signs along the way, and it was the end of the road.
I don’t recommend that journey. It can be hard, and it tends to be a warrior’s journey (and I believe that there is a better, kinder way of going about it).
Defining The Divine
Yup, I wrote that statement, and then I laughed really, really hard. I’m suggesting that you define the undefinable. And, yet, we all have a definition of what we call the Divine. This definition has helped us create a relationship with this higher power. I see a lot of co-dependent relationships with the Divine. I see the relationship that is modeled after the white knight in shining armor (save me, save me), the relationship modeled after Santa Claus (the naughty and nice list), and the relationship modeled in servitude (it is the Divine’s will).
So what kind of relationship do you want with the Divine? How are you defining to Divine Divinity and how are you and the Divine one and the same?
Letting Go Of Shame
One of the aspects that kept me from fully expressing my Divinity was shame. We all have at least one thing that we feel shameful about. That dirty secret that we are afraid to tell our closest loved ones, because if they knew, they wouldn’t love us anymore. What I have noticed is individuals are afraid to shine and be their big powerful selves, because they are afraid that this shame will come to light and people will see how unworthy they are…I have a four letter word (sent with love and compassion) about that. That deep dark secret is keeping you from letting out the Divinity in you and sending it out into the Universe to receive it back ten-fold.
So the big step in letting go of shame is to be witnessed about it. Share it with someone who you trust, whose only comment is, “I love you.” That might be too radical of an approach for some, so I suggest that you look yourself in the mirror (in the eye) and witness yourself.
Keep practicing this until you feel different around the shame situation. And sometimes, if the shame is really hidden and deep, you might require some professional support.
Allowing Love In
When I used to go to physic fairs and conduct readings, everyone wanted to know three things: tell me how to “fix” my relationship, money or health issues.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t want to be loved (deep, deep down inside). And, it is the most vulnerable act that we can do – love. To truly allow love in is a process of letting go of those walls, blocks and patterns that have prevented you from experiencing deep, Soulful Love. So I started with one statement. “Today I release all the bonds that prevent me from allowing love in, and I am willing and able to allow love into my heart and my life.”
It happened slowly for me (sometimes too slow for my humanness) and yet, every time it did happen, I paused and acknowledged it and was so grateful.
Your Own Personal Spin
So what would it feel like and be like to let the Divine out in your world? What would it feel like each moment of the day and what would some of those experiences be like? What’s your own personal spin on letting that powerful, all-loving, all-forgiving, pure consciousness shine through you? I would love to hear it, if you feel like sharing.
